      An outstanding cooking class
      Our group booked a Chinese cooking class in Shanghai & it was amazing. We learned how to use the famous Wok & a few cooking “tricks”. We prepared three dishes, chicken kung pao, sweet & sour pork, & a spicy beef with noodles. And we ate what we prepared and it was good. It’s a modest place, but once you arrive, it has a reasonably sized kitchen, two large prep tables & two large tables to eat. We were a group of 6, and there was another group of 6 at the same time, but they had two chefs working different class & dishes. One of the chefs spoke very good English & it was easy to understand and follow.

      Great Experience! Perfect addition to Vacation!
      My daughter and I had a private dim sum class with Chef Mike! We had a wonderful experience! I do feel we learned enough to go home and duplicate the food. It was a wonderful experience that adds to our vacation. Would highly recommend this class for all cooking levels!

      Great experience
      Visiting with my two children 13/15 I can highly recommend the workshop. Interest of the kids in cooking has to be there.Chef speaks no English but in cooking that isn't problem.

      Fun vegetarian cooking class
      We had a private dim sum/Shanghai noodle cooking class with chef Mike, and had a very nice evening! Our teenagers enjoyed themselves, and there were no problems adapting the recipies to the vegetarians in the family. The dumplings and noodles turned out great and were so so tasty! Recommended!!!

      Really fun and educational
      We attended one of the Vegetarian classes hosted by Mike. It was such good fun and at the same time educational in the type and style of Chinese cooking. Mike speaks perfect english and the paperwork is very well prepared meaning you can take home the recipes and make them again. All the ingredients we used were very fresh and easy to find locally not only in China but most places around the world. We made three dishes in the two hour class and we were able to have a large lunch from them and also take one away for eating another time. I can highly recommend, even if in Shanghai for a short time.

      Even Good For Kids
      UnTour Food Tours recommended this place for a cooking class and we were not disappointed. When booking the class, they helped us find a date and class that would be suitable for the kids. We did the dumpling class. Our 6-year-old twins were able to participate in every step. Yes, the main teacher does not speak English but I don't think it made any difference. She was very kind and watching her was easy to follow. I think that's probably why it was easy for the kids too. The facility is clean and easy to work in. There were plenty of staff available to keep the work areas clean. Then we got to enjoy what we made with the new friends we met in the class outside one their patio along with beers and drinks! We took Line 1 of the metro and it was not a far walk from the Heng Shan station to the kitchen however there are actually two houses that have #2 as their street number. It's the second house. Good luck and have fun cooking!

      Authentic Chinese Cooking Experience
      The class was a wonderful experience in authentic Chinese food. The tour began with a stop at the Wet Market to purchase fresh meat and produce. The chef (Jimmy) was fabulous and hands on, positive and encouraging. He shared tips and effective ways to make Dim Sum and Spring Rolls. Would encourage those who enjoy cooking simply good, authentic Chinese food to partake in this experience.

      A fantastic experience
      Our friend booked us onto the course via 247 tickets. The whole experience was fantastic. They offer a range of food choices and went out of their way to help adapt the dishes to cater for several gluten intolerant members. Our chef was knowledgeable, confident and instantly put even the non-cookers amongst us at ease. We cooked 2 meals ourselves with great guidance and then observed the last one. We left full and happy, with the recipes and the skills to do it again at home! Highly recommended and can't wait to go back and try some new dishes!

      Fun Class - Language Barrier Overcome by Funny Hands On Support
      Had a great time taking one of the Dim Sum making courses. The beer certainly helped! We made Xiolongbao - which is a skill that I will always covet because they are just SO good. Some good hands on support, showing us how the dough should feel in perparation, help with technique in rolling out the dough for filling and ultimately making some delicious (albeit ugly) soup dumplings. The instructure had limited english knowledge, but she made her advice well known by grabbing the prep items and showing walking through the steps with you tactically - overall a great class!

      Wonderful experience!
      My husband and I attended a Dim Sum workshop and enjoyed it, learned a lot and met some nice folks. Some of the ingredients were pre prepared, which made it possible to do all that we did in two hours. We were given sheets with instructions, but they could have been more thorough. I'd recommend taking notes along the way as a fellow classmate did. We learned how to stuff and form three types of wontons, an art form that will require more practice. We fried some and boiled others. We made soup with the boiled wontons. We learned how to make egg strips that went into the soup. We cut lotus leaves and learned how to fill and wrap them. We learned so many cool techniques and everything was cooked on induction cooktops. All the food turned out wonderful. I learned all I needed to feel empowered to recreate these dishes at home. Finding all of the ingredients will be the only challenge.

      Cooking Sichuan Spicy dishes
      I had been to cooking classes at Chinese Cooking Workshop before, in a very small group (family and friends). Today was the first time this was a group event with 20 participants. In spite of the large number of people, Chef Mike managed to make our cooking event run smoothly - Spicy Chicken Sichuan Style and Shanghai Cold noodles were a perfect combination. It was so much fun that two from our group immediately booked private events for their visitors and families. Highly recommendable! The group event included a visit to a local wet market - next time, I will want this included when I entertain visitors, too.

      Cooking Chinese Food
      Hands on training "How to cook Chinese Foods" Half day school trains you how to prepare several items. A little hard to find location if not familiar with Shanghai.

      Nice cooking workshop in Shanghai's French Concession!
      Very nice cooking workshop in central Shanghai with, at least partly, English speaking chefs (the older women who does the real cooking does not speak English, but the younger guy, I think her son, does and explains everything to you). It's a nice little studio, not too fancy, but proper. The price per person was around 150RMB for the normal class, which is really ok for 2 hours (food included). We had really a lot of fun and I do recommend this class to everybody who wants to learn how to cook real Chinese food.

      Great activity for a group
      I visited the cooking workshop with 10 work colleagues from around the world. The facility is nice and could probably handle 15 or so guests in the inner dining room. They have an outdoor courtyard that could bet set up to handle more people. The actual cooking area is rather small and having 4 people and the chef using the woks at once was about all that is possible. You are able to select your dishes in advance and are asked to pick some appetizers and main dishes. half of the group worked in the dining area on dumplings and spring rolls while the rest cooked. Each had a chef to assist. Some of the preparation was a little difficult for the average home cook, so the chefs did a little more than I am used to in a cooking class, but at least one of the dishes would not have turned out very well if they hadn't helped. Lots of fun drinking and cooking with people that you know and the food was very tasty. I would return if the need to entertain a group in Shanghai arose again. It is set in a nice part of the French Concession which allows for social activity before or after as well.

      Chinese cooking workshop
      First of all, you can eat what you cook, so dont go to lunch beforehand...as we did The class is fun and the food is good. However, I was actually hoping to learn a bit more (techniques, tips, cuts etc) and not just cutting and cooking. Mike is great, and maybe it is worth to have a private lesson with him, it is not that much more expensive and you can obviously tailor a lesson much more including dishes (even dumplings only if you like). The groups are small, and the dishes are easy, so everyone can prepare something nice :)

    Two friends and I did this cooking class on September 13, 2018 and we could not have had a better experience! Chef Mike is a fantastic cook and a wonderful teacher. He is also really fun to hang out with! His kitchen facility is awesome and has everything you need. We chose to make the pork dumplings and sesame balls and both turned out great. Chef Mike also gives you the recipes so that you can make them at home, and I plan to make them in the next few weeks. This class was great and I would 100% recommend this to anyone.

    Our instructor was Chef Linda and she was great with us. We made xiao long bao (a steamed soup dumplings filled with pork) and Shanghai-style fried spring rolls. These spring rolls pack a lot of flavor from a small bit of pork, cabbage, bamboo shoots, and shiitake mushrooms. The trick to making anything fired healthier and light is to have your cooking oil on high heat and only fry for 10 seconds until spring roll wrapper turns golden brown. Both were delicious and we ended up with lots of leftovers.
